Information obtained from this data collection will be used to identify areas of improvement and measure the effectiveness of the elearning course in educating healthcare providers about IPV, addressing attitudinal barriers to IPV screening, and increasing IPV screening in clinical practice. This data will also help identify any problems in the navigation and functioning of the e-learning course. The results of this evaluation will assist OWH in making revisions to the course and subsequently coordinating a national launch, making the e-learning course available to healthcare providers across the U.S. All data collection forms and activities will be used within a year time frame. Likely Respondents: The respondents for this pilot and evaluation are healthcare providers (physicians, nurses, and social workers) who are members of professional associations and who provide services in Nevada, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.

Proposed Project Clinic Context Matters Study—New— National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The daily use of specific antiretroviral medications by persons without HIV infection, but at high risk of sexual or injection exposure to HIV, has been 68885 shown to be a safe and effective HIV prevention method. The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Truvada® for preexposure prophylaxis PrEP) in July 2012 and CDC has issued Public Health Service clinical practice guidelines for its use. Because approximately 50,000 new HIV infections continue to occur in the U.S. each year, with rates of HIV infection increasing most rapidly for young MSM and because severe disparities in HIV infection continue among African-American men and women, incorporation of PrEP into HIV prevention is important. However, as a prevention tool in very early stages of introduction and use, there is much we need to learn about how to implement PrEP in real-world settings. CDC is requesting OMB approval to collect data over a 3-year period that will be used to conduct research among clinicians about their knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to a new intervention (PrEP) over the period of its initial introduction in their clinics. The knowledge gained will be used to refine measurement instruments and methods (for example, identify modifications to questions in the current surveys that are unclear to participants), develop training and educational resources and tools for use by CDC/DHAP (Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention)-funded partners, and other organizations supporting delivery of PrEP in clinical settings. The project will be conducted in clinics in each of four cities (Houston, Newark, Chicago, and Philadelphia) where PrEP has recently become available at local community health centers. Once per year for 3 years, CDC will conduct an online survey of clinicians at participating clinics to collect data on the demographics of the respondents and their knowledge, attitudes, practices, and organizational factors related to PrEP and its delivery in their clinics. Surveys will be administered through an online survey Web site. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total annual burden hours are 88.
